NEW ORLEANS – A consumer is seeking the rescission of a vehicle's sale over allegations it is defective.
Maher Ghazool filed a complaint on Nov. 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against General Motors LLC alleging that the auto dealership violated the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 15, 2015, he purchased a new 2016 Cadillac Escalade for personal use. When delivered, the vehicle was allegedly defective in materials and workmanship and that such defects substantially impaired its use, value and safety. As a result, the plaintiff claims he suffered damages of more than $100,000. The plaintiff holds General Motors LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to repair the vehicle in a workmanlike manner so as to bring it into conformity with the warranties.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks rescission of the sale of the vehicle and return of his purchase money, award for incidental and consequential damages, diminution in value, litigation expenses and all other relief the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Richard C. Dalton of Richard C. Dalton LLC in Mandeville.
